US Forest Service accepts Loveland Ski Area plan

By  | 

GEORGETOWN, Colo. (AP) -- The U.S. Forest Service has accepted Clear Creek Ski Corp.'s latest master development plan for Loveland Ski Area, which proposes potentially offering guided backcountry tours one day.

The plan is more of a road map than a specific outline of future improvements over the next decade or so. The Forest Service said Monday that potential projects listed in the plan would still have to undergo an environmental analysis and get approval, but the plan meets the general intent and direction of the resource management plan for the public land that the ski area uses.

Loveland's ideas include improving beginners' experience, improving circulation between the two parts of the resort that are separated by U.S. 6, and potentially adding guest service facilities.
